Fantasy Impact: Blake Acres averaged 86.3pts from 20 games in 2022 at Fremantle, he scored a season high 113pts in Round 9 against Gold Coast. 

He averaged 21.7 disposals, 5.8 marks & 2.7 tackles.

Acres scored 100pts or more in 30.0% of games.

His move to Carlton should see strong usage in a wing role.

Acres is likely just a pass in season long fantasy, he’s arguably fully priced and playing a wing role inconsistent scoring can be an issue.

He’s a mid-late draft option in standard draft leagues.
